A Little Joslyn Castle History:
In 1903, George and Sarah Joslyn completed one of Nebraska’s greatest homes—a 35-room Scottish Baronial mansion atop a hill on Omaha’s outskirts.
The four-story house was completed at a cost of $250,000—about $7 million in 21st century dollars. The pace of construction—11 months—was amazing, given the rich use of carved wood, stained glass, chiseled stone, mosaic tiles, and wrought iron.
The Joslyn Castle serves as a physical reminder of the immense philanthropic legacies of its original residents, George and Sarah Joslyn. The Joslyns believed that, "the possession of great wealth is a great trust and obligation."
As stewards of their home and their legacies, the Joslyn Castle provides opportunities for our modern community to connect with our founders through historical, educational, and cultural programming for the community.
